This volume records every serious game accessible to the editors (some previously unpublished) that Bobby Fischer has played since 1955, when as a boy of twelve his games began to appear in print. A large proportion of the 660 complete games included have notes on critical variations and twenty of Fischer's most important encounters have been annotated in depth by Bob Wade; these are supported by over 700 diagrams of key positions. The book also contains numerous tournament tables and records, as well as an index of total results against every opponent.
